This is a very cool historical site full of huge, amazing Incan stones. The views of Cusco are amazing and don’t miss the slide rock!

I'm eating this place 5 stars purely due to the magickal energy permeating every orifice.. I broke the rules and clambered down rocks into sectioned off bits as I couldn't resist... There is pure history and some higher energy hanging around here. Even if you're...More

Amazing Inka rock work. The size and carving of the rocks is mind boggling. Great view of the city below.
